Internship Book Resources

We love books! We require our interns to read a variety of books during the internship. Below is a list of books, either currently or in the past, that have been required reading. We’ve selected these books because they address issues like spiritual growth, counseling, fundraising, faith and culture, and relational growth. These books have proved helpful tools in equipping interns in ministry and in life.
